We drove it in a clockwise direction starting east of Wupperthal.

Johnie se Poort is about 5km from the end of the trail, if you have a look at T4A, it is quite clearly marked.
Thanks, will go back there one day :-)

Good for you, I will not even attempt it.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank amongst those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.

The last pic brought me to a steep rocky descent which I knew was outside of my skill level. I walked down and this is what it looks from the bottom. This is also where the guys with the plastics coming the other way turned around

It looks worse than it really is....I have been over the route a couple of times - I take my kids there for  an "adventure ride" seeing that they are to young for license ( 12 and 14)

OK I get your point, next time around I will pack an 85 in the pannier bag for that part :-) Jokes aside, seriaasly impressed with those laaities! And with dad for giving them the exposure. At that age my two daughters were riding KX80s, and currently my grandson is showing keen interest but at 3yo he is not quite ready for that kind of terrain..... but watch this space :-)

Citadel?  Ek wil ook gaan.  Lyk na XR country.  Waar is Masehare nou?  Locals sÍ die donkiepad tussen Heuningvlei en Pakhuispas word nogal streng opgepas deur natuurbewaring.  Maar dis 'n lekker witsand pad.
